“Extra hot!“: LED effects with laser

February 10th, 2015 Posted in EUROLITE, News, Press releases, Prolight+Sound Tags: , ,

A lot of hybrid effect devices are cavorting on the market. So far, these have been combinations of acceptable single effects, which made a satisfactory mixture. Now, these effects impress like never before, as their fine tuning is better than ever – and especially the integrated lasers are really convincing.

Just on time prior to the Prolight+Sound 2015, Eurolite now brings three effect devices on the market, which combine well-established LED effects with a laser class M2. That not only saves installation time, but provides perfect use of space – and a colorful light show of course, even at small events.

Choice of three models

You have the choice between a KLS, a hybrid flower effect and an LED bar. If you know the KLS from Eurolite, you can guess that there’s more hidden in a KLS with integrated laser – this representative of the family offers a nearly complete club lighting on one bar: Two derby effects, four strobes and two slim spots share the bar with the laser. The KLS comes pre-assembled in a transport bag.

Almost as well equipped is the FE-1500 Hybrid Laser Flower. The classic flower effect has been fitted with 8 strobe LEDs and a laser and now appears as a colorful bouquet of lights.

The third effect is the LED Laser Bar, offering 190 LEDs. Located in the center of the color changing bar is a laser with the colors red and green.

All three effects can be controlled by DMX. The LED Laser Bar additionally features an infrared remote control – the KLS even comes with a remote control and wireless foot switch.

Saving time and space

All three devices can be installed quickly and bring a party mood even into the smallest locations. This makes them the perfect devices for small rooms as well as for mobile DJs and solo entertainers.

The effects can be seen at the Prolight+Sound 2015 at the booth of Steinigke Showtechnic (hall 11.0. booth A17).

„Extraordinary“: Eurolite TMH FE-1200 put to the test

January 14th, 2015 Posted in EUROLITE

German trade magazine Soundcheck tested the Eurolite TMH-1200 FE for its December issue. The result: The Moving Head’s „flower power“ fully convinced the tester.

At the beginning, the magazine stated that the TMH FE-1200 is not a normal Moving Head: „The TMH FE-1200 is a little extraordinary“. This not only refers to the spot’s appearance, which resembles „a piece of black stove pipe“, but above all its generated light: „The beams can be concentrated, so one solid beam is formed. You have a flower effect and a beam spot in one device here“.

Special look and great effects

Testers were also enthusiastic about the light output of the Flower Moving Head: “Everybody who thinks of a weak little spot when hearing Flower Effect, is completely wrong. The TMH FE-1200 shows a proper performance”. The – not-so-common – color mixture of the spot first evoked surprise, then appreciation: “The colors red, green, blue and white are available, but they can not be mixed properly. Depending on the color choice, single beams in these colors are created. (…) But this is no drawback at all, as a very special look is produced, with which beautiful effects can be created”.

Great spot

It’s not surprising that the result of the test is completely positive: „A great spot, which combines Flower Effect, Beam and Moving Head and not only makes an impression in clubs, but also on music stages or on tour with mobile DJs.“

Eurolite in Las Vegas!

July 22nd, 2014 Posted in EUROLITE, General

The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas is the biggest Electric Dance Music (EDM) Festival in the world. In 2014, more than 400 000 visitors from 40 countries came to the festival site in three nights. They were dazzled amongst others things by hundreds of Eurolite spotlights.

EDC 2014

 

It is the mixture of music and light installations, which makes the EDC Las Vegas so unique. Featured in this year’s light installation were numerous Eurolite Audience Blinders with COB technology – they had their major performance on the main stage, the Kinetic Field.

 

Stage as high as seven storys

The field was dominated by the biggest stage ever constructed in the USA. On a width of more than 130 meters and more than seven storys, over 1000 light effects were mounted – among them more than 1000 square meters of only video panels. The Audience Blinders from Eurolite were spread all over the stage as warm white dots.

2.5 millions Watts for one stage

Steve Lieberman, responsible light designer of the “Kinetic Field”, relied on the power of 2.5 million Watts to make the main stage shine brutally bright this year. In comparison: The three stages at “Rock am Ring” had a power consumption of 650 000 Watts – altogether.

The LEDs around the main attractions were controlled by MADRIX Ultimate.

Seven stages were offered to the dance-crazed crowd – on three of them, Eurolite products were used; including hundreds of PMC-16, meanwhile regular EDC guests since last year.

Who’s Who of electronic music

In 2014, EDC took place for the fourth time in Las Vegas and attracted visitors from 40 countries into the gamblers’ city. The line-up read like a who’s who of electronic music: Show acts from Avicii and Afrojack to Carl Cox and Tiesto provided entertainment for the masses.

Introducing MADRIX® LUNA 4 and MADRIX® LUNA 16

April 22nd, 2014 Posted in General, Product news Tags: ,

inoage® expands the range of hardware products with MADRIX® LUNA 4 and MADRIX® LUNA 16.

 MADRIX Luna

Products of the MADRIX® LUNA range are mainly units that work in the background of an LED installation. But they are still an important and essential part of the overall setup. The number of LEDs used in a project is constantly increasing and so are the technical requirements. That includes the rapidly growing amounts of data and their distribution.

MADRIX® LUNA products are easy-to-use Art-Net devices to take on the functionality of reliable data distribution in such increasingly complex data networks. They receive and send DMX512 data over network and put out 4, 8, or 16 DMX universes per unit over 5-pin XLR ports (2,048, 4,096 or 8,192 DMX channels). An additional XLR port is available to receive DMX-IN data. Every MADRIX® LUNA can be used as a USB 2.0 DMX512 unit as well.
